A beautiful nose, with notes of tropical fruits, pineapple, lychee. It keeps a lively mineral structure with freshness on the palate and a smooth background. Staying on a fruit feeling, it ends on a bitter touch, clear and pleasant.

A fruity sake, rich in umami

About the brewery : Asahara Shuzo is a family brewery located in Saitama Prefecture, in the heart of the hills that precede the Chichibu Mountains, northwest of Tokyo. It was founded in 1882 by Zenjiro Asahara when he was only 29 years old and today it is Kenichi Asahara, the representative of the 5th generation, who runs the factory.  The locality of Saïtama is a relatively new terroir in sake production that does not enjoy the same reputation as some more classic regions. A recent story that prompted Asahara Shuzo to innovate a lot to attract attention. Today it offers products with a strong character, worn by two very young Toji of only thirty years. Dynamic brewers trained directly by Kenichi Asahara, a master in the art of yeast handling.

Detailed tasting notes : The producer’s choice on the Biwano Sasanami series is to offer two designs for the same sake, one modern and one more retro. A sake with an elegant nose, on exotic fruit notes (pineapple, lychee). Mineral and powerful on the palate, lively and fresh, it keeps a soft bottom.

Tasting advice : Excellent on fish, raw, grilled or fried, on vegetables in tempura, on dishes in sauce and white meats or soft cheeses. A sake that finally allows many associations. To taste fresh or in hot sake !
